Stained gift tags

Make yourself a merry little Christmas. 24 days of gifts and makes to create a frugal home made Christmas.

Day eighteen.

Coffee stained gift tags

Coffee stained gift tags.

You will need:

Manilla cardstock (or shipping tags)

Powdered coffee


In a heat proof microwave dish add in a heaping spoon of powdered coffee and tags. Be sure to spread the coffee between each layer of coffee. Boil the kettle and pour the boiling water over the tags and coffee. In the microwave place on high and cook for about 1 – 2 minutes, making sure to watch that it doesn’t boil over. The longer the cook time the darker the coffee colour.

Make up some ‘bakers twine’ by twisting together red and white stranded cotton (or colours of choice) and use a hole punch to punch a hole in the tag if you are not using shipping tags. Thread the cord through the hole and tie off.

Tags can be stamped (as shown) or a small Christmas image can be cut out and glued to the tag.
